Prusament ASA solid top layers deform part?

I'm a huge fan of the signal white thus want to print the Prusa parts using ASA Signal white. I know that ASA is prone to warp and not simple to print.

I'm using the default Prusa Slicer ASA profile without a housing. 

I've noticed that solid top layers shine through the whole part and deforms them (see the overhang in picture 1). I assume thats caused by the huge heat difference. 
I also see that the layers seem to be rough. (see picture 3)

How can I improve the layer print quality and prevent the solid layer shining through? 
Anything else which seems to be wrong on the pictures I can improve?

Here are a couple of pictures of my last try (also without a high skirt here and it warped a bit caused of that - next try I'll print a high skirt with it 🙄 ):

When you say "high skirt" do you mean draft shield? because if you don't you should try a draft shield.

Thank you for your reply. What I mean is adding an „oval skirt“ as described in the prusa blog post for printing ASA

Search for 'buldge' on the forum.  Common issue with PS and no one way to stop it.  Some materials show it more than others too.

This article is a little old, the oval skirt is now generated automatically by Prusaslicer and is selected in Print settings/Brim and Skirt. It's been in Prusaslicer for the last couple of releases.
